Despite his remarkable charitable work and gregarious personality, the Montreal Canadiens decided that P.K. Subban wasn’t the right fit for their locker room.
However you feel about it – big win for the Habs, worst trade in team history or somewhere in between – the bottom line is that Subban is now a member of the Nashville Predators.
From every indication, it sounds like the two will go together like peanut butter and jelly or Subban and Jagr wigs.
The Tennessean’s Adam Vignan believes that Subban isn’t just a great fit from an on-ice standpoint, bumping an already-strong Predators defense to another level.
His attitude should blend in well, too.
“The way that I look at it is the guy, from what I’ve seen and playing against him and hearing things and seeing things throughout his time in the NHL, he’s all about fun,” Ryan Johansen told the Tennessean. “He cares about everybody. … To me, he’s enjoying every moment of it. Like all of us, he’s living his dream of playing in the National Hockey League. And he’s having a blast. He’s not going to let people judge him for who he is. He’s just going to be himself.”
Of course, not everyone is thrilled with the combination.
While some wonder if Subban rubs people the wrong way, others even wonder if it’s a bad move for P.K.
Hey, maybe both Subban and his new team will prove doubters wrong.
